One Ship many destinations. Cruise vacations in particular reduce stress (not always the case with land vacations), help families bond, create lasting memories, create lasting memories and even reduce your risk of heart disease, studies show. I have put together a small list of all the pro’s when it comes to cruising.
1.Travelling Time is part of your vacation
On a cruise, you're able to relax and enjoy the facilities of the ship as you sail between destinations. You don't lose time in busy airports and sitting on planes or in your vehicle while moving between places you're visiting. Today's ships are beautiful, modern and comfortable.
A cruise fare will include your accommodation, your cruising from port to port, meals and entertainment. Some premium lines also include your drinks, gratuities and excursions as part of an all-inclusive fare. While on a standard cruise you may spend a fair amount on board on items such as drinks, excursions, gambling, Internet access and gratuities, these are at your discretion.
3.Access to places difficult to get to by land
There are some parts of the world that are best seen or most easily accessed by ship. This includes hard-to-access places such as Alaska's glaciers and the Norwegian fjords or passing through the Panama and Suez canals. There are also remote places like the local Portuguese Islands.
If you're visiting multiple countries on your itinerary, you don't have to line up and pass through immigration at each destination. Once you've checked in and the cruise line has your details and passport, they handle interactions with the authorities in most cases right up until you disembark at the end of your journey.
5.Pack and unpack only once
You'll need to pack before and unpack after your cruise — just once — instead of every time you visit a new destination, as you might have to do on land. If you're not flying to or from the cruise, you can also take as much luggage as you wish. No charges for oversize bags!
